Comments: More on Girl Geeks - Yes, Zivity - No

Right on, Mary. Zivity is trying to use women to abuse women. The most prevalent argument we faced at Gracenet -- a networking group for women in high-tech I founded in the '90s -- when we launched our DisGRACEful Award in Advertising to target and eliminate sexist ads in high-tech media was that a woman had been in charge of developing the ad. That's the same argument racists used to make to sanction slavery by pointing out that slaves were originally kidnapped by other Africans.
